Veterinary point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) of the pleural space and lung (PLUS) can help you manage these patients! PLUS is rapid, easy-to-learn and practical ultrasound skills that ANY practitioner can apply in everyday practice. PLUS is commonly used as a patient-side diagnostic tool to rapidly identify underlying conditions and help direct further diagnostics and initial therapy.
Through a co-delivered interactive lecture with several case examples, participants gain an appreciation of when PLUS can be used and what might be identified in everyday practice. Watch this dynamic session with Dr. Soren Boysen and Dr. Serge Chalhoub today!
"Point-of-care ultrasound has become an essential piece of the puzzle when it comes to managing veterinary patients. We can actually, right there at the cage side, gain a very rapid evaluation of what's causing that patient to have respiratory difficulty or a cough within 30 to 60 seconds. That first-line evaluation with the point-of-care ultrasound, right there when the patient comes in, is hugely impactful when it comes to comforting the owners, figuring out where we're going to go, and discussing prognosis, costs, etc. It makes a huge difference on how we manage those patients." - Dr. Soren Boysen
